Model Railroader 2014 Layout Progress Tour

The Model Railroader staff held its annual Progress Tour on a cold Wisconsin day in late February. The Progress Tour, which has been our tradition for at least 20 years now, is so-named because we “progress” (PRO-gress) from one layout to another. We also observe progress (PRAH-gress) – or lack of progress – in the construction of our co-worker’s home layouts.

These point-and-shoot photos were taking during the tour. Our 20-minute stops at each model railroad don’t leave time for light stands and the other professional equipment we take with us when shooting photos for publication in the pages of Model Railroader.

We refrained from food photos this year, since in past years many of you commented that we ate too much for breakfast and lunch!

Some staff members were unavailable for the tour or failed to clean up their basements in time, so this year we visited only four layouts.

But, as always, we look forward to making other stops next year. – story by Neil Besougloff; photos by Bob DiDomenico and Neil Besougloff
